Happy Halloween Gift Set and SWEET STUFF and WINNER!!
Happy Day everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful week!! My several days away was a bit of fun and just a getaway!! But while I was away my house was broken into...actually a funny story!!! I had forgotten to tell my little 90 year old neighbor and my mailman that I was going to be away for several days. Mrs. Marge is very protective because I usually check on her all the time....and you can guess about my mailman...I get more packages than anyone on his route and I am always awaiting him to see what's new!!!! So on Tuesday, they both decided that something must be wrong so the mailman called his wife to come over to my house and she and Mrs. Marge called 911...and the city police, the sheriff, and the town police all converged on my house and broke in through a window and found me NOT HOME!!!! It's kinda nice to know that someone missed me while I was away!!! Too funny, huh?!?!
Anyway I wanted to show you a little gift set of card and gable box that I made for the Issue 4 of the Whimsy Stamps Inspirations Magazine. I used Meljen's darling Little Bunny Witch stamped on X-Press It Blending Card, colored with Copics and Promarkers, adding Stickles, Prisma Glitter, and Spica, and cut it out with double Nesties. Isn't she the cutest thing!!!
For the front of the card I used Bazzill for the base and all double matting, the DP is Happy Haunting by Best Creation, and all panels are machine stitched. For the horizontal I used a Spellbinders Halloween Fence and some chartreuse grosgrain ribbon tied into a bow and topped a Recollection jeweled button. The spider web is a Memory Box die and I have topped it with a jeweled spider and added the same jewels to the other corners. The sentiments on the card and gable box are from the digital Halloween Ticket Sentiments set. The gable box was decorated with the same materials I used on the card and I filled the 3 plastic jars with typical halloween candies. Pssssst...you can't see the M&Ms in the middle!!! Smiles!!
The inside is VERY simple because I wanted the charming papers to show. On the first panel I added another bow and topped it with a pumpkin pierced earring and on the second panel I used a halloween pin for the jotting spot.
